two 2x8GB kits or one 4x8GB kit- kingston

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at these two kits Kingston HyperX Beast
 
16GB kit: KHX24C11T3K2/16X (2 modules of 8GB, 2400MHz)
32GB kit: KHX24C11T3K4/32X (4 modules of 8GB, 2400 MHz).
 
Anyone knows: are the individual 8GB memory modules the same in both kits? In other words, would purchasing two kits of KHX24C11T3K2/16X be exactly the same as purchasing one kit of KHX24C11T3K4/32X? Is it the same with all manufacturers?
 
The 32GB kit is more expensive than two 16GB kits. If the modules are the same, how is the premium justified? Are there better chances that a 32GB kit would work better or without flaws than two 16GB kits together as 32GB?
 
I'm going to use them on a Gigabyte Z777X-UP5.
 
Cheers
 
p.s. The last 32GB kit I had from G.Skill, the TridentX 2400MHz has just died on me (one of the modules went awry out of the blue ... now fails memtest86+)

Two of the 16GB kits should be exactly the same as the 32Gb kit.
Did you check the warranty on your previous ram? They usually have lifetime warranty.

Thanks. Yes they do have lifetime warranty but Amazon no longer has them in stock and asked me to send them in for a full refund (they even collect it and pay for return shipping!).

 

Would G.Skill replace them? I guess i could ask them...

Sure, you don't lose anything to ask, but if Amazon gives you a full refund it maybe be worthwhile depending on what you paid for the G.Skill's.
